JHACK consists of Al Conroy (Canada) and Jan Kees Helms (the Netherlands). The duo collaborate since the eighties by exchanging music recorded on tapes. Nowadays they compose music by exchanging sounds by internet. Darker Days is a trilogy of guitar drones and field-recordings made in two continents of the world and melted together in a melancholic atmosphere.

The pitch of the drone notes are a little high for my taste and this creates (in me anyway) a tension and an expectation that something is about to happen. The ultimate effect is unsettling and not entirely relaxing.
